Also included is a two-hour language course per day.

Places available: 2 placements

The Kaliningrad region is home to 97% of world’s amber deposits, one can find pieces of amber strolling along the coastline. This small European region of Russia is home to 1 million people, most of whom are regular visitors to Gdansk, Berlin and other EU cities. Many of the population has never been to the Russian mainland as it’s almost twice as far (It’s under 900km to Berlin and over 1200km to Moscow).
